Brian, Rosenblum, Building Publishing Services in the Academic Library, a presentation at CALC 2007, Colorado Academic Library Summit: Changing Cultures: Collaboration, Social Networking, and New Technologies (Denver, May 31 – June 1, 2007).  Self-archived July 23, 2007.

Abstract:   In an effort to address concerns about the current state of scholarly communication, some academic libraries are taking on more active roles as publishers of scholarly information. This presentation will look at various examples of library-supported publishing efforts, some of the issues and considerations in launching such efforts, and some of the open-source tools that can support scholarly electronic publishing.
